We investigate an application of the method of fundamental solutions (MFS) to the time-dependent two-dimensional Cauchy heat conduction problem, which is an inverse ill-posed problem. Data in the form of the solution and its normal derivative is given on a part of the boundary and no data is prescribed on the remaining part of the boundary of the solution domain. To generate a numerical approximation we generalize the work for the stationary case in Mann (2011)  to the time-dependent setting building on the MFS proposed in Johansson and Lesnic (2008) , for the one-dimensional heat conduction problem. We incorporate Tikhonov regularization to obtain stable results. The proposed approach is flexible and can be adjusted rather easily to various solution domains and data. An additional advantage is that the initial data does not need to be known a priori, but can be reconstructed as well.
